By: Chyenne Wiers

Summary of the House

First appeared in California. Mostly middle class people occupied these homes. They have deep porches with wide overhangs. Usually only one level no upstairs. Usually have wood shingle siding and exterior with brick or stone chimneys.

History of the House

The Bungalow became popular because it met the needs of changing times where the lower class was moving from apartments t private houses. Bungalows were modest and inexpensive for as little as $900 although the price rose to around $3,500 after the war/ They could be shipped by train and assembled on site so they were really good if you wanted a house quick.They can be found in a lot of older neighborhoods in America.
